Afghan leaders including former President Hamid Karzai and former chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation, Abdullah Abdullah, stressed the need for national dialogue to resolve the existing challenges in the country.
Former president Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, expressing concern over the current situation of the country, said that the Islamic world should make the Islamic Emirate aware of their actions.
"I ask the Islamic world to consider the Taliban's move. The Islamic world is on a very positive route, and it is obviously vital for them to make the Taliban know that the principles of Islam and the welfare of Muslims throughout the world are going in which direction," he stated.
Ghani, in a message on the occasion of Eid, said he considers girls' education a necessity and he emphasized that world examples show that one girl's education can change five generations.
“World examples show that the education of a girl can change five generations, and the education of a boy can change only one generation. In a family where a man and a woman are educated, that is the best Muslim family,” he said.
Ghani added: "The goal should be the well-being and peace of all the people, not a system of a few specific figures. A system can only continue with the will of the Afghan nation, otherwise it will face threats."
"History has now proven that Ghani would not have fled if he had considered the people. A way of peace could have been found, though. I hope you would consider the welfare of the people and avoid taking nine million dollars out of Afghanistan,” said Tariq Farhadi, political analyst.
"In the messages of political leaders, two important and fundamental issues stand out, the will of the people and their basic wishes, demands and needs. Therefore, the government cannot ignore the will of the people,” said Sayed Javad Sajadi, university lecturer.
Meanwhile, former president Hamid Karzai, on the occasion of Eid, in a message on Twitter asked the Islamic Emirate to soon reopen girls' schools above the sixth grade.
Karzai in his Eid message emphasized that the national discourse should start as soon as possible and is the only way to resolve the country's problems.
Abdullah Abdullah, in an Eid message, once again emphasized the need to ensure social justice.
"It is crucial and important to ensure social justice, collaboration, the right to education, and the basic rights of the people in order to resolve the current problems. I emphasize the need for respect of cultural, ethnic, and religious diversity ... in order to move towards a bright future and to strengthen national unity. I hope the officials pay attention to these principles,” Abdullah posted on Facebook.
